3 is a conceptual diagram for explaining the proximity depth of the proximity sensor.

As shown in FIG. 3, when a pointer such as a finger of a user approaches the touch screen, the proximity sensor disposed in or near the touch screen senses the proximity sensor and outputs a proximity signal.

The proximity sensor may be configured to output different proximity signals according to a distance between the proximity-touched pointer and the touch screen (hereinafter referred to as "proximity depth").

A distance at which the proximity signal is output when the pointer approaches the touch screen is referred to as a detection distance. In short, by using a plurality of proximity sensors having different detection distances, the proximity signals output from the proximity sensors are compared, .

In FIG. 3, for example, a cross-section of a touch screen having proximity sensors capable of sensing three proximity depths is illustrated. Of course, proximity sensors that detect less than three or more than four proximity depths are also possible.

Specifically, when the pointer is completely in contact with the touch screen (d0), it is recognized as a contact touch. If the pointer is located on the touch screen at a distance less than the distance d1, it is recognized as a proximity touch of the first proximity depth.

If the pointer is located on the touch screen at a distance d1 or less and less than the distance d2, the pointer is recognized as a proximity touch of the second proximity depth. If the pointer is located on the touch screen at a distance d2 or more and less than the distance d3, it is recognized as a proximity touch of the third proximity depth. If the pointer is located at a distance d3 or more on the touch screen, it is recognized that the proximity touch is released.

Accordingly, the controller 180 can recognize the proximity touch as various input signals according to the proximity and proximity positions of the pointer to the touch screen, and perform various operation controls according to the various input signals.
